Accord Mortgages expands sales and underwriting teams

Accord Mortgages has expanded its team of field-based business development managers (BDMs) with four new members.

Andrew Calder is the new BDM for Scotland East, including Edinburgh. Russell Maggs has been appointed BDM for the Thames Valley area, including Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire. Eloise Tovey will support brokers on the South Coast, while Mike Houston will cover the South East.

In addition, Gemma Nash has joined Accord’s telephone BDM team, while Jennifer Hadwin has joined the business development adviser (BDA) team as part of an apprentice scheme, providing brokers with advice on cases over the phone.

The intermediary arm of Yorkshire Building Society has also established two new managerial roles including Chris Hill who will oversee the sales team in the south of the country as regional sales manager.

Alan Luther has also been appointed as a new corporate account manager, with specific responsibility for supporting the continued development of Accord’s new build proposition.

David Robinson, national intermediary sales manager at Accord, said: “As part of our ongoing commitment to grow our broker support service these new appointments mean we have a robust sales network servicing intermediaries from the top to bottom of the country, with a choice of channels – including face-to-face, telephone, or web chat – to best suit brokers’ business needs.

“We have also expanded our underwriting team to further develop the support we offer brokers, with common-sense lending decisions and direct access to the people making those decisions.”
